This, dear blog readers, is my 80 year old mother about to fly off in a glider. Last weekend’s excitement to top off the big cheque on Friday. This was the grandchildren’s present to her, so Sylvie very nobly represented them as they are all off doing different things at the moment.
The picture is the point at which the pilot was showing her how the controls work, whilst she was actually more concerned with fastening her sick bag to her parachute strap. My dad is checking up on the pilot.
She flew it from 2000 to 900 ft and then arrived back.
Been busy with work and all this week, which is why it’s been a bit quiet on here. However, some TKOE news…
Firstly, thanks to Tim Gilligan for your brilliant donation. I need to start another totaliser now I think.
Secondly we are about to unveil some TKOE/Rosie Kilburn fine bone china mugs. For those nice cup of tea days. And some TKOE hoodies which topped the TKOE poll of items to buy.
And finally – it’s the Race for Life season again. REMEMBER – you can buy TKOE mixed packs of tshirts at special price if there’s several of you doing it, or just buy one and you’re supporting the cause too.
Just wander on over to the shop – which did have an evil spirit in it last weekend, but the TKOE elf sorted it out – and it’ll be in the post before you can say ‘Race for Life’.
